Here's Riot Time Wizard with a bugs & feedback thread for Dawnbringer Riven:
"Cast aside your shadows; all paths lead to the light! Let Order guide your blade when you take to the Rift as Dawnbringer Riven! (Thanq NurseFlan for help with the feature list!) 
  • New model, with a model-swap for her ult! (a golden, radiant embodiment of Order)
  • All new animations! (fluid and elegant, with turn-tech on her wings)
  • All new VFX! (prismatic and empyrean, with golden effects for Q & W in ult form)
  • All new VO and SFX! (heavenly and crystalline) 
Dawnbringer Riven is now available to play on PBE! As always, we'd love to hear any thoughts or constructive feedback, so please feel encouraged to share them with us!"

Here's Riot LoveStrut with a bugs & feedback thread for Nightbringer Yasuo:
"The truest path is the darkest. Destroy this world with Chaos and pave the way for a dark, new age as Nightbringer Yasuo! 
The Darkest Details 
  • New model with an initial model-swap when your whirlwind is up and a second swap after ulting an enemy (A dark, raging embodiment of Chaos)
  • All new animations! (New monstrous spikes that pierce out on spellcast)
  • All new VFX! (Shadows, fire, and brimstone)
  • All new VO and SFX! (Sounds of hellfire and dark power plus new lines! His ult VO gets considerably fiercer. “SORYE GE TON!”) 
We always love hearing your feedback and feelings! All bug reports and thoughts help us make these skins even more awesome, so please keep 'em coming! 
Thanks, cuties! <3

New Summoner Icons

Eight new Dawnbringer Riven and Nightbringer Yasuo themed icons are in today's update:

New Ward Skins

In addition to the new skins, we also have Dawnbringer and Nightbringer themed ward skins!

Dawnbringer Ward


Nightbringer Ward


New In-Game Emotes

New in-game emotes were added - one for Nightbringer and one for Dawnbringer. Presumably these will be tied to the Order vs Chaos themed missions & loot. 

Heads up on new Order and Chaos themed content 

Here's Ponts with more on the new Order and Chaos themed content in today's PBE  - you'll be completing missions or purchasing Order or Chaos tokens to exchange for loot.
Hi everyone, 
I wanted to give you guys a heads up on some of the new content that will be showing up in the next day or two on PBE. We'll be doing some cool things with Missions and Loot and we've got two awesome new skins for Yasuo and Riven. Below I'll describe whats coming and I'll also be updating this post with any issues that come up. Remember that this content will be turning on over the next day or two and that as always with PBE, things could change before it hits LIVE. 
We’re testing out new missions themed toward Chaos and Order. Complete missions to earn exclusive rewards and to unlock new missions. 
We are introducing limited-time loot we’d like you to test. Earn Order and Chaos Tokens by completing missions (or purchase them in the Store) to unlock special Icons, Borders, Emotes and Orbs. You can also purchase passes themed toward Order or Chaos, which grant you a Hextech Chest & Key, an Orb, a unique Ward, a multiplier that doubles the amount of tokens you earn on missions, and mission lines exclusive to the passes. 
Orbs contain a guaranteed Legacy skin shard and a 50% chance to get a bonus drop. If your orb triggers a bonus drop, you’ll have a chance to get either a random amount of Tokens, two Gemstones, or a loot-exclusive skin shard. 
Completing the special mission lines rewards you with Hextech Chests, Hextech Keys, Tokens, and even Gemstones.  
In-game content:

  • All new VFX! (extra golden effects for Q & W in ult form)
  • All new VO and SFX! (heavenly and crystalline) 
Nightbringer Yasuo 
The truest path is the darkest. Destroy this world with Chaos and pave the way for a dark, new age as Nightbringer Yasuo! 
  • New model with an initial model-swap when your whirlwind is up and a second swap after ulting an enemy (A dark, raging embodiment of Chaos)
  • All new animations! (New monstrous spikes that pierce out on spellcast)

Known PBE Issues: 
  • There are several items that will be missing art assets in the Loot Crafting menu. We are aware of the ‘missing’ assets, but please let us know if you see mismatched or incorrect assets. 
As of the 5/31 PBE update, these new crafting options and missions were not yet enabled for PBE testing.

Honor Update 


The Honor system update is now on the PBE for testing!
Using a new honor ceremony after each game, players will now honor up to one team mate. The more honor you gain from allies, the more honor levels you'll gain. You'll be able to earn loading screen flairs by increasing honor level, key fragments available exclusively through remaining honorable, and, after reaching a certain honor level, Honor Capsules that can include exclusive rewards.
This new honor level displays on your profile page.
Here's DuckCurry with more information in Fight with Honor on PBE
"Hey everyone, the big update to Honor that New001 mentioned yesterday is now on PBE! Here’s some details so you know what to expect when you see the new Honor ceremony and categories, rise in Honor levels, and unlock rewards along the way. 
Honor Ceremony
  • A new voting screen appears after every matchmade, non-remake game. 
  • Honor one teammate per game, we’re planning to add a way to shout out opponents after launch. 
  • Mouse over a teammate, choose a category, then click to vote before time runs out. The new categories are:  
    • Stayed cool: That tilt-proof top laner who took a beating but didn’t give up
    • Great Shotcalling: The adc who made a slick Baron call after cleaning up a teamfight.
    • GG <3: The player who saved your butt or even just cracked a good joke. 
  • Everyone has one of those days, so there’s a vote skip button. 
  • The game client now automatically closes ~8s after nexus destruction.  
End of Game 
  • At the End of Game screen, you’ll see the honors you’ve received. 
  • If you got a majority of the team’s honors, everyone sees a celebration over your summoner name. 
  • At level 3+, a small gemstone will signal when you’ve unlocked loading screen flair in your next game (details on this below!)  
Honor Level 
  • You have an Honor level that lasts all season! Everyone starts fresh at Honor Level 2. Yay! 
    • You max out your Honor level at 5 by playing games and consistently playing to win. For testing purposes, leveling up will be faster on PBE than when Honor launches. 
    • Earning Honor game to game will level you up slightly faster, but honors are not required to level up. It’s about consistency, not one standout performance. 
    • You only lose Honor levels by getting hit with penalties. Simply not receiving Honor will not level you down.
Profile page 
  • Profile elements have been re-arranged to incorporate the Honor emblem. 
    • Mouse over your Ranked emblem to see your other Ranked stats as usual.
  • Other players’ honor levels are hidden for privacy! No peeking! >.> 
  • Getting hit with penalties level you down, and temporarily lock you out of rewards. 
  • Your Honor lock state can be seen on your profile (only visible to you ) and can be lifted by consistent sportsmanlike games. 
  • You’ll get a notification when you’ve “unlocked”, and your profile will update at the same time  
  • Key fragments now drop through Honor. 
    • Everyone who’s level 2 (starting level) or above gets all their free key fragments by just playing games without getting hit with penalties
    • Earning Honor votes is not required to get your keys
    • Winning is no longer required to earn keys.
    • Keys no longer drop at end-of-game, but periodically while outside of queue.
  • Honor level 3+ players earn loading screen flair by receiving honors. 
    • This flair lasts for one game.
    • You get flair in your next game if two premade teammates, or one non-premade teammate honors you
    • There’s no cooldown on flair, so you earn it every game you meet the honor conditions above
    • Your flair unlocks at level 3, grows at level 4, and fully blooms at level 5. 
  • There will be more rewards coming to live. We’ll be sharing more rewards details as we approach launch ;) 
We’d love to get your feedback! We’ll also be hanging around to answer questions, so drop a line!"
Here's a brief video showing off some of the Honor badge transformations:

1) Ricklessabandon shared that he will be working on support items changes for 7.12:
"okay, so here's a preview of the changes i mentioned earlier. again, should show up in the 7.12 pbe cycle, which is coming up soon"

2) On the Prestigious LeBlanc tweaks, KateyKhaos tweeted (1)(2):
"This was meant to go out with the chromas, but an improper check in caused it to not update properly. Sorry for the delay! Thanks to -A Pale Woman on the boards for pointing out the mismatch of the champ select asset versus the in-game texture. They're the real MVP! :)"
